    Touching Lives Take 2(TLT2), is an innovative project, where Deafblind people deliver training to increase awareness of how to recognise and support dual sensory impairment. This specialised training will be offered to groups and organisations who engage with the elderly in Fife and East Dumbartonshire. This project has been funded by The Robertson Trust and The Lottery over the next three years.

    TLT2 aims to transform the lives of older dual sensory impaired people by:

    • Equipping staff with practical ways to support the elderly when their sight and or hearing deteriorates.
    • Supporting groups and organisations to become more dual sensory aware. 
    • Develop skills and confidence to encourage sensory impaired elderly people to participate in their groups.

    Deafblind Scotland is running awareness sessions for groups, organisations, and workplaces that engage with and support the wellbeing of older people. Involvement in these sessions would provide:

    • Specialist training delivered by a Deafblind individual.
    • Support for the elderly in ways to address the challenges of sensory impairment.
    • Upskilling staff with methods to support sensory impaired individuals.
    • A Deafblind awareness toolkit.
    • Partnership working and specialist advice from Deafblind Scotland.

    The session will take place on Zoom on Thursday 25 March 2021 at 13:45 - 16:45. Any group, organisation, or workplace that is interested in joining the session should e-mail Alison Wilkie, Project Officer for TLT2, at [email protected]

    If your organisation is interested in attending awareness training with Deafblind Scotland in the future, please e-mail [email protected] and we will be able to arrange this.
